Editor's note: NESN.com is going to tell the story of the 2012 Red Sox in Bobby Valentine’s words. Each game day, we will select the best Valentine quote that sums up the day for the Red Sox. Clay Buchholz isn't making the AL All-Star team this year. He won't be winning any awards. And he likely won't even be appreciated for his contributions to a middling Red Sox roster. But in each of his past four outings, Buchholz has continued to prove not only his worth but his immeasurable importance to the team's success. Once again on Tuesday evening, Buchholz...

The Red Sox ended their losing streak with a 2-1 win behind the arm of Clay Buchholz in Miami.
Buchholz went seven strong innings, scattering five hits and one walk against nine strikeouts. His lone run was a Logan Morrison homer in the 7th, but Clay was able to finish off the Marlins and close out the inning.
The Sox scored their runs in the top of the 7th from some unlikely characters...
Clay Buchholz has been dealing lately, one of the few bright spots in a very rough stretch for the Red Sox. Once again Tuesday, the club turned to Buchholz to change their fortunes in the midst of a losing streak, and the 27-year-old delivered when the team dearly needed him to. The Sox' offense is still very much mired in a funk -- one that can't be blamed on spacious Marlins...
Clay Buchholz impressed yet again on Tuesday night, tossing seven strong innings and willing the Red Sox to their first win in five games. Buchholz, Felix Doubront and other members of the Boston pitching brigade have proven pretty consistent as of late. And it looks like the Red Sox offense might need to take a page out of their book given their recent sun-scoring troubles. Check...
The Boston Red Sox ended their four game losing streak Tuesday in a 2-1 victory over the Miami Marlins. Clay Buchholz was the story as he picked up his seventh win on the season in seven strong innings while striking out nine. For the first six innings the game remained scoreless as Marlins starter Mark Buehrle was having his way with the Boston lineup. However, in the seventh...
MIAMI -- After a slow start to the season, Clay Buchholz has found his groove. Buchholz struck out a season-high nine batters in seven strong innings Tuesday, leading the Boston Red Sox to a 2-1 win over the Miami Marlins. Since going 3-1 with a 9.09 ERA in his first six starts, Buchholz is 4-1 with a 2.83 ERA in his last seven. "The ball is rolling right," Buchholz...

One day after criticizing the umpiring crew that called the weekend series at Fenway Park, Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine took issue with the entire system of umpiring. "I think they're very well trained, and I think they're very good at what they do. I think it's almost impossible to do what they do, so why do we ask them to do the impossible?" Valentine...
The Tuesday Takeaway
Yesterday’s takeaway from the series between the Red Sox and the Marlins in Miami was Josh Johnson’s return to form. After Tuesday’s 2-1 Boston victory, perhaps the same can be said of Clay Buchholz.
The 27-year-old Buchholz was dreadful from the start of the season through May 21. He coughed up seven runs in four innings to the Tigers on April 8 and...
The Boston Red Sox need a wake up call. And they need it quickly.
Maybe Bobby Valentine getting ejected for protecting his players after some awful strike and non-strike calls late in the game is it. Obviously it didn't work to rally them back in the 9th but it shows the players he's got there back.
But if that isn't it, they desperately need something to get them...
One of my biggest pet peeves is when fans blame refs or umpires for their team’s loss. You hear it all the time. “Oh the refs were against us” or “The umpires cost us the game.” That talk drives me nuts. It’s a bunch of Tom Foolery.
Refs or umps don’t cost teams games. Well, let me rephrase that. 99.9 percent of the time, the refs or umps don’t cost teams games. The...
After falling for the fourth straight game last night 4-1, the Boston Red Sox look to get back on track in the middle game of a three-game set with the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park in the little Havana section of Miami.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Marlins television market...
The Red Sox aren't used to this. It's June, and the Sox are currently sitting in last place of the American League East with a record below .500, which is uncharted territory for a team that has finished third or better in the division every year since 1997. Injuries have decimated the Red Sox' lineup, but that hasn't slowed down the offense much. Boston currently...
5 p.m.: David Ortiz has been given the night off, after playing in each of the Red Sox 61 games this season. Kevin Youkilis will replace Ortiz at first base, while Will Middlebrooks mans the hot corner on the other side of the infield. Adrian Gonzalez continues his journeys in the outfield, taking up the right field spot for Boston on Tuesday night. As for the Marlins,Jose Reyes...
Every game seems to feature a different lineup for the Boston Red Sox, making it difficult to find offensive continuity during a rough stretch. Unfortunately, the multitude of injuries the Sox have had to deal with thus far have made it difficult for manager Bobby Valentine to do much with that lineup -- he can shuffle the cards around, but ultimately he's playing with a limited...
